You know how I always say “make your wedding YOU?” Well, this couple loves entertaining and throwing dinner parties so much they decided to literally make their wedding one big dinner party and hosted it at their own home. I super love that! And once you see the decor and personal touches and the bride’s fabulous style, you’ll super love it too.

What was the inspiration behind your wedding day?

My husband, Glen, and I wanted to get married at our home. We have a beautiful space and it is the place that is most dear to our hearts. We love entertaining and being surrounded with friends and family.

Your favorite moment of or memory from the day?

Walking out to a soft glowing dinner table with all of our family and friends laughing, enjoying the party to an acoustic musician. It was our vision coming to life.

 How did you make your wedding you?

For our wedding day, we wanted our guests to be a part of our biggest dinner party ever, feel welcome and comfortable, and most importantly get to know each other.

 Our wedding started with an extended cocktail hour, followed by the ceremony, dinner at a singular long dinner table, ending with desserts, cocktails, and dancing. The cocktail hour was in the entry patio featuring a playlist of Glen’s favorite artist, Bruce Springsteen, and signature cocktails courtesy of our friends at Hawthorne & Julep in Kansas City, MO. The dinner party was in our yard with a long table and passed buffet-style dining with intimate lighting and an amazing acoustic guitarist, Glenn Nowak. Post dinner party, we had desserts and a whiskey bar by the pool, next to a DJ-hosted dance floor.

I love how personalized this wedding is to the couple – from the venue to the playlist to the cocktails. And it was absolutely beautiful, right? I’m a huge fan of the “one long reception table.” And the bride’s pouf accessory – I *wish* I had worn a fabulous pouf on my wedding day. It’s so fun! Congrats to Elizabeth & Glen!

  •  We both kinda need a haircut but he refuses and I keep forgetting to make an appointment. So, we'll just keep werkin' that hair flip   7 years and three babies ago we celebrated our one month wedding anniversary in Florence on our honeymoon. I miss having traveling adventures with you. We're on a different kind of adventure now (one with even better views but an even harder climb to the top) but someday we'll get to do this again. Side note: I also miss being this size, so I'll put that on the "hopefully someday" list too #goals #beforebabies #grainybutgood
     I wonder where Charlie gets his love of Halloween from? 🤔 He has already decided what he wants to be and I'm trying to figure out how to make it happen. And what his brothers will be. It is hard to top the #jarethandtoby duo from last year... Does anyone else think about Halloween costumes months in advance? I know I'm not the only one.   Can I please freeze time and keep him this sweet bonnet wearing, sling loving chubby baby forever? #allthefeels #themorebabiesyouhavethemorebabiesyouwant #quincyrhys
